WAN Shaping



  • One question about traffic shaper configuration.

    I have access to internet trough a cable and a static real IP. The problem is that along with the internet i have local services as DNS, WEB server, DC++ and game servers provided by ISP. My question is how to shape the speed at 144/60 for internet and in the same time to leave 100 Mb/s for the local services on the WAN interface.

    Help pls.

    Looking forward for your answers. TY  :'(



  • For this to work you need a custom ruleset. However we only support the rules created by the trafficshaper atm.

    Setting up trafficshaping is not that easy. I suggest playing around with the wizard and view the rules and queues it creates. You can do what you need by making the parent queues use 100 mbit/s and adding queues with upperlimits for your internet traffic inside these parent queues. Then setup your rules to first match your ISP local service subnet to send to the fullspeed queue and rules below these to match everything to send into the queues with the upperlimits.

    Does altq support multiple levels of child queues? It would be great to see a setup for situations like this where you could have your queues arranged like thus:

    
    root queue (80mbit or so)
    |- local queue 80/80 prio 2
    |  |- local high prio
    |  `- local regular/low prio etc
    `- internet queue 144/60 prio 1
       `- internet high prio
       `- internet low prio
    
    


  • AltQ supports this, however we don't support this from the gui yet. Expect more in a future version.



  • OK then which file to change manualy and then to reload states to take this effect and is it possible.
    I Will generate initial setup with the wizzard and then will add two queues for Internet access.



  • The rulesfile that includes altq is regenerated on every rule change in the webgui or on IP-change at wan or at bootup or…unless you want to implement this in a clean way (meaning adding this functionality to the webgui which means quite some work) it's not possible atm.
